   (1.08a: )
   1. improved efficiency of the basic conversion from exact
      fractions to floats, giving speed gains especially for 
      the power function; 3.1415^3000000000 as a float is now 
      within the package powers (sic),
   2. the comparison routines handle much better inputs with
      big powers of ten,
   3. the xintseries package has macros for floats,
   (1.08: )
   4. square root extraction, both for floats, and in a variant
      for integers.
   5. new package xintbinhex.sty for expandable conversions of
      arbitrary length data to and from binary and hexadecimal.

   Many improvements to the pdf documentation.
